32 “Indeed, (A)ask now about the earlier days that were [a]before your time, since the (B)day that God created [b]mankind on the earth, and inquire (C)from one end of the heavens to the other. (D)Has anything been done like this great thing, or has anything been heard like it? 33 (E)Has any people heard the voice of God speaking from the midst of the fire, as you have heard it, and survived? 34 (F)Or has a god ventured to go to take for himself a nation from within another nation (G)by trials, by signs and wonders, by war, (H)by a mighty hand, by an outstretched arm, and by great terrors, [c]just as the Lord your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes? 35 You were shown these things so that you might know that the Lord, He is God; (I)there is no other besides Him. 36 (J)Out of the heavens He let you hear His voice (K)to discipline you; and on earth He let you see His great fire, and you heard His words from the midst of the fire. 37 (L)Because He loved your fathers, He chose [d]their descendants after them. And He [e](M)personally brought you from Egypt by His great power, 38 driving out from before you nations greater and mightier than you, to bring you in and (N)to give you their land as an inheritance, as it is today. 39 Therefore know today, and take it to your heart, that (O)the Lord, He is God in heaven above and on the earth below; there is no other. 40 (P)So you shall keep His statutes and His commandments which I am [f]giving you today, so that (Q)it may go well for you and for your children after you, and (R)that you may [g]live long on the land which the Lord your God is giving you for all time.”
